Are coyotes dangerous?

We live in harmony with most wildlife in Newfoundland and Labrador, often without even realizing it. Our forests and barrens are home to many animals; unless we intentionally seek them out, some people can go a lifetime without being aware of their presence. As long as humans and wildlife respect each others’ boundaries, conflicts can be avoided – but we all have to do our part to make sure we don’t encourage behaviour that could cause problems for wildlife.

If coyotes are near your home:

  • Never leave edible garbage or pet food outside.
  • Limit use of birdseed, and pick up fallen fruit around your property.
  • Keep pets indoors, or under supervision when outside. Roaming or unattended pets are an easy target for coyotes. Have pets spayed or neutered to avoid attracting coyotes.
  • Never attempt to tame a coyote by feeding it.
  • If you are having a problem with coyotes near your home, contact a local Conservation Officer. For Eastern Newfoundland, the local wildlife office is at Paddy’s Pond. Tel: 709 729-4180
